### Thirteen-point conic and four-point line, are they new?

We know that Five points determine a conic and Two Points Determine a Line. Here I found a simple construct of a conic through $7$ points (in PS I note that how the conic through thirteen points) and ...

### What is the center of minimum distance of a region?

Suppose we have a compact plane region $R$ (not necessarily convex or connected). I am working in a problem which involves the point $p$ in $R$ that is, in average, the closest to every other point. ...

### Golden ratio in arbitrary triangle and how construct general problem

There are some new results above construction of the Golden ratio. Examples Odom's construction associated with an equilateral triangle, Dao's construction, Tran's construction associated with an ...

### A generic question on circles associated with a triangle

This question is inspired by two posed by P.Terzić (both given elegant synthetic proofs by F. Petrov). The starting point is a triangle $ABC$ and a triangle centre $G_1$. There are two classical ...

### Collinearity of three significant points of bicentric pentagon

Can you provide a proof for the following claim? Claim. Given bicentric pentagon. Consider the triangle whose sides are two diagonals drawn from the same vertex and side of pentagon opposite from ...

### Does anyone know of an academic reference for this proof that the tangent to a hyperbola at a point bisects the angle between each focus to the point?

I am writing a report and as part of it I need to prove the property that for a point $P$ on a hyperbola, the tangent to the hyperbola at $P$ bisects the angle $\angle F_1PF_2$ where $F_1$ and $F_2$ ...

### A number characterizing the deviation of a triangle from the regular triangle

Given a triangle $\Delta$ with sides of length $a\le b\le c$, consider the number $$q=\frac{a^4+b^4+c^4}{(a^2+b^2+c^2)^2}$$ and observe that $\frac13\le q\le\frac12$ and the extremal values of $q$ ...

### Necessary and sufficient condition for tangential polygon to be cyclic

Can you prove or disprove the following claim? Claim. Let $A_1,A_2, \ldots ,A_n$ be the vertices of an $n$-sided tangential polygon and let $B_1,B_2, \ldots ,B_n$ be the contact points of the ...

### Stability Question for Isotopies Between Compact Sets

Suppose $X, Y$ are compact sets in $\mathbb{R}^2$ and $F$ is an ambient isotopy carrying $X$ onto $Y$. Is there an ambient isotopy $F'$ agreeing with $F$ on $X$ and which is constant in a ...

### Does this plane geometry theorem have a name (well-known)?

Consider three circles $(O_1)$, $(O_2)$, $(O_3)$. Denote the homothetic center of $\{$$(O_1), (O_2)$$\}$ by $A$, the homothetic center of $\{$$(O_2), (O_3)$$\}$ by $B$. Let $C$, $D$ be two points ...

### To cut a triangle into $n$ $p$-sided polygonal regions

Given any triangular region and two integers $n$ and $p$ which can be large and $p > 4$. It is needed to cut the triangle into $n$ $p$-gons (e.g., cut a triangle into 10 heptagons). Among the $p$-...

### A claim on partitioning a convex planar region into congruent pieces

Let us define a perfect congruent partition of a planar region $R$ as a partition of it with no portion left over into some finite number n of pieces that are all mutually congruent (ie any piece can ...
Let $ABC$ denotes a triangle and $p(ABC)$ denotes its perimeter. We say two points $O_1$ and $O_2$ inside this triangle are perimeter points if there are points $a$, $b$ and $c$ on the sides $BC$, $AC$...
